This place should be rated much higher than it is. The food is amazing!!! Although we did take out, the staff were very considerate and helpful, and the kitchen staff were exceptionally fast. We originally wanted to order sweet and sour chicken, which they were out of, but were more than satisfied with the sweet and sour pork. Seriously!!! The food here is awesome! We're going back again tonight.

We had a meal here on our first night in Palm Cove and thoroughly enjoyed it , then I read some trip advisors comments. So I have held off with my review thinking it was a first night and we had stars in our eyes. Since then we have eaten here 4 times and enjoyed it immensely . We didn't find it over priced. My favourite Cantonese Duck . The won ton soup is clear and full of flavour . If you like Chinese you won't be disappointed fresh and full of flavour .BYO corkage $4 per head. Yes they do have a few hiccups but not enough to put you off. Book a table and dine out the front and listen to the roll to the ocean.

As locals we were pleased to find this "new" Chinese Restaurant on the Cairns Northern Beaches. Thought we'd give it a try one evening. Set on the front corner of a walkway/breezeway containing a number of eateries and connecting through to the Mecure Rockford Resort at Palm Cove, this restaurant/café has seen a number of different lives over the past years. With new management and chef, why not give it a try?
There are only about 4 tables inside and more spread out on the outdoor deck (blending into other food establishments nearby) and facing across the Palm Cove Esplanade. Took a table inside and provided with the menu - one page. My wife and I looked at the menu and then each other with the joint comment, "look at the prices". As locals we like eating out and enjoy a Chinese Restaurant more toward the city of Cairns, but thought we'd try Ming Dynasty. Prices for any given dish (mains) ranged from $6.50 to $10+ per dish dearer by comparison. Discussed the price issue with one of the staff who offered the comment, "might be why some couples just order one dish and a rice!" This is not a flash 5 star restaurant, so we found the prices way too high for what was on offer, particularly as locals just looking for a casual evening meal. Left without ordering and went to another restaurant, had a great meal and saved heaps of dollars.

Delicious Chinese tucker and good service. We ate here 4 times while in palm cove. All the dishes we had were very tasty and cooked to perfection. The chef is from Hong Kong. The sun choi bow for entree and sizzling beef with black pepper and sizzling garlic prawns for mains were
standouts. Deep fried ice cream to top it off. Highly recommended. BYO grog
